As readers will be aware winter flooding was not as bad as in previous year, but we did have to overcome two less severe floods in December and again in February.

The clubhouse is now fully restored with tremendous turnouts for our Friday evening club nights since we reopened on April 11.

Colts cricket is thriving with five teams entered in the East Devon Youth Cricket League.

We have also retained our Friday evening introduction to cricket programme for the Under-8s. A senior colts side will also compete in the clubs unique Community League.

This league is a vibrant and exciting part of the club and creates a great deal of enthusiasm within the community.

This season also sees the introduction of a side in The South Devon Cricket Sunday League mainly aimed at giving more competitive cricket experience to our senior colts and club players.

Community is at the very heart of our club ethos and we will continue again where we can this season to support other organisations and charities as we have done in recent years.

On the DCL playing front we are sorry to see Bob Dawson move on, but we are strengthened by several new signings and look forward to the new season with real optimism. In particular, the appointment of Ben Phillips as head of coaching is a real bonus to all levels of cricket at Ottermouth and he also brings a wealth of experience to first team squad.
